Frequently Asked Questions

How is the Northeast Campus affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention?
The Northeast Campus is Southern Baptist by theology, but operates independently of the Convention. We hold tightly to the same beliefs, but are not supported by the Cooperative Program as the SBC seminaries are. Our professors are Southern Baptists by conviction before joining the faculty.

What is Practical Missions?
We believe that Practical Missions is a key component of a complete education for ministry. The Practical Missions program allows students to put their training into action by serving in local ministries. Students are responsible for spending a prescribed amount of time each week working in an approved ministry setting, and also for personal witnessing. (To see more regarding our Practical Missions, click here.)

Is there a dress code at the Northeast Campus?
Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary seeks to provide an atmosphere of respect for faculty and staff, students, and friends of the seminary. Preparation for ministry is a high calling, and all members of the seminary family represent Christ and are considered leaders in the church. For this reason, MABTS has established a standard of dress for the seminary community that is conducive to worship, serious study, and development of each student’s calling to ministry. It is therefore necessary that all students be dressed and groomed both modestly and in good taste while on campus. For example, clothing should not be excessively short or revealing: skirts/dresses should be to the top of the knee; midriffs or undergarments should not show; and shirts should not be low-cut and should have at least a modest strap. Students should consider the tightness of form fitting pants. Hats, caps, shorts, mini-skirts, frayed/ripped pants or t-shirts, yoga pants, sweatpants, leggings, tank tops, pajamas, and flip flops are not allowed on campus. Earrings are allowed for women only; other visible body piercings for men or women must be removed while on campus. Facial hair for men should be well-groomed. 
Does the Northeast Campus train women students for the ministry?
Yes, but not for the ministry position of pastor. We admit female students to study in the fields of Christian Education and Theology. (For the full policy and biblical explanation, click here.)
